Press this button to manually set all relay channels to ON or OFF simultaneously. The button label changes to the current status of ALL CHANNELS only All On or All Off.

HARDWARE INSTALLATION
1. Connect a 5V supply to the board using 2.1mm jack or via the 2 pin terminal connector. To avoid damage, ensure correct polarity : +ve to Vcc and ve to GND. Connect USB 2.0 cable to your computer and Hivitronix Controller board. When connected for the first time, the board will initiate communication with your computer system to recognize it as FTDI USB device. It is normal for few relays to toggle during this operation and/or power connection. Connect your load as shown in the diagram below.

This button is used to manually toggle each relay channel to ON or OFF position. The display on the button changes to the current ON/OFF status of the relay and the corresponding channel LED lights when activated.

POWER SUPPLY
This board requires an external 5V 500mA (minimum) power supply via the 2.1mm DC jack or 2 pin terminal connector. Extend power using the 2 pin connector. Do not use a USB port to power this board. PWR is shown with green LED.

UPDATE
Press this button to send the current data on Hivitronix Software Interface to the board. This button is also use to refresh the software for any hardware changes. Discovers the connected board when pressed.

SOFTWARE INSTALLATION
1. Download .NET framework for windows systems from http://msdn.microsoft.com/enus/netframework/aa569263 . Perform hardware installation. See instruction below. Proceed when USB device ready is shown. Unzip Hivitronix Software to a suitable folder on your system. Note the folder location. Open Hivitronix Software folder and double click on Device Interface icon to start software. Click on RESET button to clear board memory.

RESET
Resets all relay channels to default OFF position when pressed. Clears the internal data on chip. Software buttons may be temporarily disabled during RESET
